This is a strange logic.

If DCA had indeed applied for AFRICA then a Change Request would have 
been otiose.

So by approval of a Change Request appears to me therefore that it is 
official confirmation that the DCA Trust had applied initially for the 
DOTAFRICA string and after representations, ICANN has allowed it to be 
changed to the AFRICA string.
